Our first trip to Mid Wales and Aberdovey - a special town with great location and fabulous beach walks. A great cottage and incredible landscaped back garden.

Our family has been visiting Aberdyfi for about 40 years, so it feels like home from home. This is the first time we decided to do self-catering (much easier with a toddler) as we usually stay in a hotel. The house is so warm and cosy, very easy to settle in to, and it has everything we need! We absolutely love the original features, the decor and the appliances all worked a treat. Thank you for helping to make this yet another very special stay in Aberdyfi.

The moment we arrived was such a warm and wonderful feeling! The cottage was much more than we expected. Everything was clean and tidy. The children loved the upstairs attic! Wonderful views! Many thanks and we will be returning.

We loved Aberdyfi and the cosy cottage, it made us really feel welcome and at home. Wonderful, colourful and lovely decorated details everywhere, spent the whole day looking - when we weren't at the beach, on a mountain, in a railway station or just admiring the beautiful scenery. Thanks for a great holiday experience - when we ever come back to Wales we will knock on your door again.

Very nice cottage, wonderful and lovingly chosen decorations everywhere in the rooms so that one easily feels familiar with the house. We especially loved the attic room (perfect for older children) with the window to the stars at night and the gardens with the fantastic view over Aberdovey to the sea. Great kitchen equipment (even picnic boxes for the day at the beach) and every thing you need to cook a decent meal

Cosy, beautiful cottage with everything you need for a perfect holiday. Beautiful views from the garden too. It was perfect! Thank you
Tips - Walk up the hills locally for amazing views. Pharaoh's Bistro was fantastic to eat out (book in advance) and the cafe on the corner of Copperhill Street do lovely breakfasts and lunches too. Highly recommend the steam railway from Aberystwyth to Devil's Bridge for breathtaking views too.
